The collection contains boxes and several separate items. It is semi-cataloged. The entire collection deals with The Zamorano
Club of Los Angeles.
Zamorano Club is a Southern Californian organization for bibliophiles and manuscript collectors. It was founded in
1928, and sponsors lectures and publications on book-related topics. The Club was named in honor of
Agustín V. Zamorano (1798-1842), a provisional governor of Alta California and the state's first printer. It is club tradition to present keepsakes
to members at meetings, resulting in a variety of printed mementos ranging from pamphlets to small books; sometimes the items
are reproductions of historical documents.
